Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Hidden gem: "....other times I can barely see..."

Hello:
3:33am on a Tuesday morning in the dead of winter here in Boston ...feels like I am the only person alive. I am directed towards June 1974 and find this hidden gem that got lost by the surrounding monster shows:
[1974-06-20 - Atlanta]
http://www.archive.org/details/gd74-06-20.sbd.clugston.2179.sbeok.shnf

In particular, the "Truckin' > jam > Eyes of the World > Slipknot! > China Doll" As the lyrics foreshadow: "Sometimes the lights all shining on me / Other times I can barely see..." Jerry and the band travel back-and-forth between the outer limits of both light and dark. Awe-inspiring composition of music.

If you check it out, I hope I didn't mislead you and you gain some value there,
--- AshesRising

This has long been one of my favorites for just the sequence you mentioned.

waynecs: ..good to hear from you. I sincerely hope all is well. Any chance you can you point me towards any other forgotten hidden nuggets during the '72 - '74 era? ...you know, not entire shows but sequences such as this one.

Here's an example of one someone here posted recently:
[1972-09-16 - Boston Music Hall]
"Playin'in the Band" (20-min) ends first set
"Dark Star > Brokedown Palace" [check out what they do at approx. 22:20 in "DS" ...meltdown peak is transformed inside-out with just a few notes into a really nice bright 4-min jam.... and then transition into an extremely heart-felt "Brokedown Palace"]

SBD version on archive is incomplete but has the heart and soul:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd72-09-16.psbd.unknown.6683.sbeok.shnf

Check out this one as well - currently seeding..see notes:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd1972-09-16.matrix.sb20.chappell.77442.flac16

Check out the few tunes from the previous night as well, especially "The Other One" ...gets cut during the 2nd chorus but the band and Keith, in particular, are creating some unique material.

Later,

Hey ducats: ...yes, I am within approx. 3-miles of "Winthrop St." of Brookline, MA ...magnificant homes on that street ..most built during the 19th. century with stunnning architecture ...each one is unique. ..and the residents are very generous; Brookline was the first city where I drove cab so I could go on tour.

[1973-03-24 - Philadelphia]
"Truckin' > jam > Spanish jam > Dark Star > Sing Me Back Home" ....try to find that mindbender if you don't have it. Unfortunately it's not on the archive.

Later,

Great Call Ashes!! Killer Eyes into first slipknot! is amazing. Not sure this is the show to put on if you are having troubles sleeping though. Hard to nod of during that sequence.

elbow1126: great - I appreciate the validation, especially since I am basically "tone deaf" and feel the music more than I hear it. I get bored with sleeping so I avoid it as much as possible. Thanks a lot.

And there were days between,

(He Live's here, not that -apos;s - guy...)

this is a hot sequence, but it's opening up that eyes of the world/slipknot! can of worms again.... we had the discussion here a while back about the jam that was often played at the end of eyes that sounds quite a bit like slipknot, but is in fact NOT.

HOWEVER, this jam from june 20, 1974 IS our lovely knotted friend and there ARE other versions with slipknot riffs thrown in at the end...

so leaving that aside for a second, WHAT IS THE NAME OF THE SPIRALING, CHROMATIC MINOR CHORD JAM AT THE END OF 73,74 EYES OF THE WORLD?

(an we get PHIL to weigh in on this? probably not huh...)

[...] not a slipknot jam.... 4/2/73

He Live's: I am not aware of the "Eyes of the World/Slipknot!" "can of worms" thread you reference. Regardless, as you note, "Slipknot!" is present here (though the timing if where it begins is questionable).

I thought that jam out of "Eyes" you reference was "Stronger Than Dirt...," however I am a bit too far "out there" at the moment to answer your inquiry. [I'll send you an email when I land.]

In the meantime, wrap yourself around this 30-minutes of eternity:
[1975-03-23 - Kezar Stadium]
Blues For Allah > Stronger Than Dirt Or Milkin' The Turkey > Drums > Stronger Than Dirt Or Milkin' The Turkey > Blues For Allah

If you don't already have it, at least stream it from the "Taper's Section" of "dead.net:"
http://www.dead.net/features/tapers-section/march-19-march-25-2007

You're going to really dig Merle's organ during the opening here --- enhancing the deep, dark opening of the show ....and then Keith let's his presence known in "Stronger Than Dirt..." [Just FYI: "Stronger..." here is much, much different than the finished product that coalesced with the August '75 "Great American Music Hall" show and the "Blues for Allah" album. I'll take this one....]

Under eternity,
